WNBC Anchor Meant to Say ‘Doggy Paddle,’ but Something Else Slipped Out

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

WNBC anchor David Ushery slipped up during a story about a dog that was rescued 135 miles off the coast of Thailand.

The text read “doggy paddle,” but what came out had a more sexual undertone: Ushery started to stay “doggy style” instead.

Ushery caught himself mid-slipup and carried on, but the mistake was enough to send his co anchor Stacey Bell into a giggle fit. You could hear the crew laughing too.


Ushery picked up the read and finished the VO. He even made a joke about it.

TMZ pulled the video, which you can watch here.
